    Local School Wellness Plan

    The Atlanta Board of Education promotes student success and healthy schools by supporting wellness, good nutrition, and regular physical activity as a part of the total learning environment. The Board supports a healthy environment where children learn and participate in positive dietary and lifestyle practices. Schools contribute to the basic health status of children by facilitating learning through the support and promotion of good nutrition and physical activity. Improved health optimizes student academic performance potential and ensures student achievement.
